Paper use management
At Fuji Xerox Australia, we have surpassed our internal paper use target of 1 percent reduction and achieved a 15 percent reduction on 08/09 levels.
We have improved our measurement and reporting process, enabling more accurate weight measurements to be appropriately applied, depending on the paper size (A4 and A3 paper), leading us to recalculate and restate our historic use. This positive result is due to an increased understanding of our internal paper procurement policy and general awareness about paper efficiency at all sites, following a concerted and consistent communication campaign. The measurement process will be further improved when dedicated internal use cost centres are used at all sites enabling more certainty about which paper is ordered for internal use and which paper is ordered for customers' use such as showroom demonstrations. In 10/11 we plan to review our policy for internal paper use in conjunction with internal stakeholders and use this as an opportunity to increase awareness about paper's environmental impacts and the' environmental credentials of different paper stocks.
